Raghu Rai, Founder & CEO of Jio Health, described Vietnam as a fertile land with an annual average spending increase of 10 percent on healthcare services.

Moreover, Vietnam has one of the fastest growing middle-income class countries, where people give priority to healthcare and education services.
